"What an incredible book! ... An absolutely brilliant way to persuade newly independent readers that non-fiction can be for pleasure and not just facts and figures for research or topic work!" Reading Zone

There’s much of interest whether yours is history ancient or modern, geography, mythology or something else Timothy includes, and illustrators Aisling Lindsay and Irene Montano show in the engrossing, vibrant spreads that unfold to show the entire length of each river journey.

World stories to wallow in for sure. Red Reading Hub

The beautifully illustrated pages fold out to reveal the full length of the river and are full of stories, history and mythology on both sides- which our little readers just LOVED!

The illustrations are deep and vibrant, the cover drew my interest immediately. Each mighty river has its own page with it’s name, illustrated beautifully to match it’s surroundings and geographical location. The fold outs recreate the length of the rivers from source to sea, with stories along the way detailing truths, mysteries and adventures.

This is the kind of book to ignite a passion for travelling at any age! book.mother
